Jamaica | Spreading Ja love from the left wing

Footballers, too, often have affection for Marley. As an example, consider Ezra Hendrickson of new Major League Soccer side Chivas USA. During his days with the Los Angeles Galaxy, the native of St. Vincent and the Grenadines wore a Bob Marley T-shirt underneath his jersey. Of his adjustment to Chivas, Hendrickson said, “I brought four Marley CDs with me and we listen to them all in the locker room” (Paul Gutierrez, “Hendrickson Welcomed Home with New Team,” Los Angeles Times, 27 Feb 05).
